"To anger a conservative, lie to him: to anger a liberal, tell him the truth” is a quotation that is often credited to Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), but there is no evidence that he ever said it. The quotation has appeared in print since about 2007—well after Roosevelt’s lifetime.
“It’s easy to annoy a liberal, just tell the truth about them”—without the “conservative” half—has been cited in print since at least 1995.

Teddy Roosevelt Quote on Liberals
“To anger a conservative, lie to him. To anger a liberal, tell him the truth.” - Theodore Roosevelt
I was perusing through the internet today and came across this quote. I was unable to source the quote but couldn’t help thinking about its’ merits. If you sit back and think about it, there is a certain native intelligence that just percolates to the surface.
THE DEMS HATE THIS TWEET:
To anger a conservative LIE to him. To anger a liberal, tell him the truth. Teddy Roosevelt #tcot #tlot
